Take Highway 96 South to F. M. Road 417, turn left and continue on 417 over the railroad tracks to the Clever Creek Baptist Church.  At the intersection of 417 and County Road 1030 turn right onto County Road 1030, go 1 mile to County Road 1057 and turn right go .6 mile and the cemetery is located on private property about 100 yards at the rear of the cow pasture.  Permission MUST be obtained to enter through the gate.   The Cemetery is partially surrounded by a chain link fence.  Part of the fence was destroyed during a straight wind storm.  The Cemetery seems to be abandoned and in need of maintenance.
